    I was lucky enough to get an advance reader copy of this book. As someone who grew up an hour and a half from Manhattan a decade or so after Roz Chast, and who worked in Manhattan in the mid 80s, I read this with special fondness.

    Truly, a love letter to New York, with lots of Chast laughs along the way!...

    Less personal than "Can't we..." so if you're expecting something cathartic you'll be disappointed. It's really a Manhattan travel guide but just focusing on whatever Chast thinks is important. I'd get it from the library (or buy it as a gift for someone from out of town and read it before giving it...
